Mourjan Marinas IGY has announced it will undertake the design, construction and operation of all marinas in the Lusail City’s development in Qatar.

Master planning for the 35km2 Lusail City development, north of capital Doha, has been completed and it’s envisaged the area will be home to 200,000 people.

It’s also destined to be a martime hub, with a number of marinas targeted at various levels of the industry – including private, business and community marinas. More than 1,500 berths are planned across the development

Lusail Real Estate Development Company, the master developer for Lusail City, appointed Dubai-based Moujan Marinas IGY to take over every aspect of the maritime work, from marina master planning and design, to building, owning and managing the full marina portfolio.

The first phase of the development is expected to be operational in January 2011 and will include waterfront dining and shopping. Other phases will include yacht clubs and shipyards.

Michael Horrigan, CEO of Mourjan Marinas IGY, said, “We are proud to play such an integral role in this visionary development of Lusail City. This development is setting new standards in master planning communities and reflects Qatar’s unfailing commitment to world class quality standards.

"There is perfect synergy between Lusail City’s priority for the integration of the communities with the development and encouragement of yachting in Qatar together with our vision for high quality, well-designed and efficiently-managed marinas.”
